    Default US Led Attack on Libya Approved. Imminent

    Here we go again folks...

    UN approves Libya no-fly zone

    UNITED NATIONS – The U.N. Security Council voted Thursday to impose a no-fly zone over Libya and authorize "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from attacks by Moammar Gadhafi's forces, hours after the Libyan leader vowed to crush the rebellion with a final assault on the opposition capital of Benghazi.

    The United States joined the resolution's initial supporters — Britain, France and Lebanon — not only in pushing for a speedy vote but also in pressing for action beyond creation of a no-fly zone to protect civilians from air, land and sea attacks by Gadhafi's fighters.

    This marked a dramatic about-face by the Obama administration which for weeks hesitated about supporting a no-fly zone, fearing that the United States could get sucked into another war in a Muslim nation.

    The U.N. vote paved the way for international air strikes on Gadhafi's advancing military and reflected the past week's swift reversal of the realities in Libya, where once-confident rebels are now in danger of being obliterated by an overpowering pro-Gadhafi force using rockets, artillery, tanks, warplanes.

    The resolution establishes "a ban on all flights in the airspace of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya in order to help protect civilians." It also authorizes U.N. member states to take "all necessary measures ... to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack.

    The vote was 10-0 with five countries abstaining including Russia and China, which have veto power in the council, along with India, Germany and Brazil. The United States, France and Britain pushed for speedy approval.



    US readying plans to enforce Libya no-fly zone

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration was readying plans to enforce a no-fly zone in Libya with the help of Arab countries, officials said Thursday as the United Nations Security Council voted to authorize the move.

    These officials, who spoke after a closed-door briefing in Congress, said they expected an attack on Gadhafi's forces could begin by Sunday or Monday.

    Does this mean that if we get involved and things get messy that Eddie Vedder will put Obama's head on a stake on stage and that Natalie Maines will tell an audience she's embarrassed to be from the same country as Obama?

    There's oil there, so we care.

    The one thing that will definitely get the US moving on an issue is someone threatening our oil supply.

    Are you familiar with above-ground nuclear tests in the 50s? Are you also aware that 5000 miles of ocean separates Japan from the West Coast?

    Now, think of the amount of radiation in Japan, the amount in the above ground test ground tests, then factor in the 5000 miles of ocean... Use your brain and some logic. Don't be a moron.

    My dad was in Indian Springs Nevada as a teenager. He had illegally volunteered and joined the Air Force at 16. He told me stories about watching atomic testing out in the open with no protection. He passed away in 1990 at the ripe old age of 55 from I'll do my best to remember the exact type, I believe it was acute malblastic lukemia.

    I'm sorry to hear about your dad. My sympathy goes out to you.

    As unfortunate as those testings were, people need to realize those were done directly on American soil and the levels of radiation were much higher. The radiation in Japan is very low compared and there is 5000 miles of ocean separating us.

    Again, people need to use some logic and common sense before they go out and start chomping down on potassium iodide pills (of which there's only a 48hr window for them to work IF there were reason to take them).
